VASHON ISLAND BEACHFRONT HOME WITH HOT TUB

Vashon Island House Rental Photos and Description

Waterfront House, 2 Bedrooms + Bedroom/Living Room, 1.5 Baths (Sleeps 6)

It's beautiful here!

Our three story, fully updated 2BR, 1.5 BA beach home was built in 1904, and is located right on the waterfront at the very end of Hake Road. The house is built into a hillside and there are about 25 stairs from the parking area to the house.

Incredible views from anywhere you sit and beautiful sunsets. You can anchor your boat at our buoy.

TOP FLOOR:

Master Bedroom queen bed, full closet, widow's walk.

MAIN FLOOR:

Small bedroom with a twin bunk bed, Half-Bath, Full Kitchen, and Living Room/Dining Room with double sleeper sofa. French Doors open out onto covered porch with a hammock and a porch swing.

GROUND FLOOR:

Family room with large sectional couch (pulls out to a double bed), flat screen TV and queen size futon. Full bathroom, mini bar with refrigerator/microwave. French doors open onto deck with hot tub.

YARD:

Off the ground floor deck there is a small lawn which leads to a dock over the water. There are also stairs from the lawn to the beach. At high tides, the water comes right up to the seawall so there is limited beach access.

Due to the size of the house, septic, and hot water tank, we have limited our home to 6 people max. If your party contains more than 6 people, you may want to look for a larger property.

We're a family of four from Seattle that loves spending time together and enjoying nature. Amanda is a Finance Manager for city of Seattle and Eric is an Oncology Nurse at UW Medical Center. Ruby and Jeremy are awesome kids and experts at having fun.

Eric Rucker purchased this house in 2012

We've been looking for the perfect Vashon beachfront home for years. Vashon is a special place with a vibrant arts community and extensive natural beauty. We wanted a place that was as sunny as possible - it had to be west facing. Our home has direct sun exposure from about 10:30 in the morning until sunset. We also wanted a place that had a very natural view with exposure to lots of wildlife. We regularly enjoy seeing eagles, deer, fish, seals, otters, various waterfowl and lots of sea creatures along the beach.

A fully updated 1904 Beach House. Three decks to hang out on! A full size hot tub! Beautiful views of Quartermaster harbor from every deck. And about an hour drive/ferry to downtown Seattle. Did we mention that it's really beautiful here?

Great get-away

  • 4 of 5
Yes, even in winter, our family of five found this place very inviting and comfortable; we'd like to return in any season! You couldn't find a rental with a kitchen so well stocked. The home beautiful and fully stocked with everything you could possibly need. The view is gorgeous and covered porch a big plus. The furniture and beds are really comfortable and there are inside rooms and outdoor areas where you could be off by yourself if you wish. The deck and patio have room and seating for large groups and the views are beautiful. It is such a peaceful and very private setting. It’s a little hard to get to if you don't like a lot of stairs. You have to go down to the beach when the tide is way out if you want to get a walk in. Enjoyed the view, collecting sand dollars, watching ducks, hot-tubbing. Great location for a vacation. Bring a ferry schedule(s) if planning off-island forays. Would recommend and plan on using this VBRO location again.

Wonderful location. Charming, superbly equipped waterfront home.Owner,more than accomadating

  • 5 of 5
We will definitely stay here again. We were 4 adults; 2 writers & 2 artists with occasional day visitors. The three waterfront view levels were particularly enjoyable in that everyone had space to work when necessary, and simply soak in the sea, beautiful sunsets, and the ambiance of this lovely part of Maury Island. This would also be an ideal spot for those with children. This home has a welcoming spirit and its owners could not have been more solicitous of our comfort. We look forward to our next visit.

Maury Island beach home

  • 5 of 5
We found the house and location wonderful. The place had historic character, many handsome architectural features, nice furnishings, and many extras that made it a particularly fine space for families, especially a pair of in-laws and their son's family who also hosted local relatives for several evening meals. There is a grill for cooking delicious meals, board books and toys for small children, an outdoor hosing-off spot for muddy children, a hot tub for evening relaxation, a deck over the beach for observing shoreline life and birds, and of course the two kayaks that gave hours of exploration time on the waves. We also enjoyed the nearby Dockton Park play area and docks.

Relaxing Island Getaway

  • 5 of 5
The pictures cannot do justice to how charming and beautiful the house is. We had the most relaxing time, in an incredible setting.

The owners obviously put great deal of thought into every detail. The kitchen is fully equipped with all cooking equipment we needed. The TV had basic cable and a DVD player, but the kids much preferred to look out the windows at the water and wildlife. There were plenty of games and activities for our 3-year old.

Beachcombing is incredible here. A short walk along Manzanita Beach around the spit to the south gives views of Tacoma. Our kids had a blast looking for geoduck clams or just skipping rocks.
We went on two amazing kayaking outings (but learned to never try this during high winds!).

There are other great hiking opportunities nearby. Don’t miss the beach at the Point Robinson lighthouse.

Vashon’s downtown, about 20 minutes away, has several great restaurants, but you’ll want to make the house your home base as much as possible. We can’t wait to come back!

Exceptionally Well-Prepared Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5
After arrangements fell through for our annual Spring Break stay on the coast at Moclips, we scrambled about for a spot closer to our home in Tacoma and simply could not have scored a more accommodating and restful place to unwind than this beach place on Vashon. My last-minute query was met with an enthusiastic and prompt response from Amanda and we were very shortly set up for a five-night stretch.
Having stayed at a number of vacation rentals all over the world throughout the years, we've come to expect certain lapses in stock/supply items or occasional shortcomings in comfort arrangements and will haul in or over-pack to cover the missing stuff we believe we may need. There was nothing however, lacking in this regard at the beach place. The house is quite literally stocked like a personal residence with every need anticipated. One might expect adequate dishes, bowls, basic utensils, cooking pots and a decent pan but there was plenty of all the basics and loads of extras...we were pleased to find a pastry brush and a handy tea strainer given I hadn't packed mine.
Elsewhere, there were extra linens, towels and even robes to use on the dash back in from the spa. The home is outfitted with newer electronics....flat-screen television, ipod docks and the wifi connection was excellent everywhere in the house. With a nod to responsible island living, the homeowners encourage a light refuse footprint by providing appropriate recycling bins and clear instructions on their use. Cleaning supplies and equipment are all natural, accessible and available for use.
Everything is clean, comfortable and in excellent condition. The environment could not be better set for small children...safety features abound and there are loads of games, toys, art supplies and even a small playhouse on the main floor. Kayaks are available for use and the harbor provides a great environment for exploring. The beach house is technically on Maury Island, tucked up into Quartermaster Harbor at the little enclave of Manzanita. The towns of Vashon, Burton & Dockton are minutes away and there is always some community event...music, art, theater, etc....going on. The Farmer's Market is now in season in Vashon....pick up a Beachcomber or Loop newspaper for a schedule of events and community news.
Having lived here all our lives, we've always been very fond of Vashon Island. We were immensely pleased with our stay at the beach house and would encourage you to visit yourselves.

Charming Home on the Water

  • 5 of 5
This is a charming home in a fantastic location on the water. We loved the spacious wrap-around porch that is just perfect for evening cocktails or relaxing during the day on the swing or hammock. The kitchen is very well equipped and maintained. We thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub on the deck overlooking the dock and water. It's the perfect getaway location.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review and so glad that you were able to relax on the covered porch and enjoy the views. The new outdoor grill can help complete the beach menu after you're done with your crackers and cheese!

Looking forward to having your visit again soon!

Best,
Amanda
